Ecological problems, growing energy demand, and the prospect of oil depletion have created the need for the development of environmentally friendly technologies based on renewable raw materials. Can biofuel meet energy conservation needs and reduce greenhouse gas emissions? Or is it just a marketing ploy? Why do some people think that biofuel production is dangerous and what does hydrogen have to do with it? What research is being done on biofuel?

WHAT ISSUES WE WILL CONSIDER

From our lecture you will learn:

— What types of biofuel exist and how is it produced?
— How much does biofuel cost?
— Can biodiesel completely replace traditional diesel fuel?
— Is biofuel as safe as we are told?
— What does the experience of biofuel production and use show?
